Tarot Card Meanings

To help you learn more about any Tarot card, and so to help you learn how to read Tarot cards, here are some links to find my pithy Tarot meanings and my spiritual Tarot meanings for each of the cards. (Note that these are links to searches on my blog that sometimes pull up a few extra posts.)  For some of the cards, you will also see a link called “Other side” which links to an article the explains the positive aspects of “negative” cards and vice versa.  I explain this concept in a blog post called “The other side of the cards.”

Note that my book Tarot Reading Explained also provides card meanings, in addition to a detailed explanation of how to do Tarot readings and lots of entertaining and informative sample readings that demonstrate the art of Tarot reading.
My book The Soul’s Journey collects, re-edits, and expands upon the more than 400 blog posts about Tarot and Spirituality for which you can find links here.

  1. Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    Whenn I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has solme
    overlapping. I just wanted tto give yyou a quick heads
    up! Otheer then that, very good blog!

    • Thanks for the heads up. However, this blog is a WordPress site, so such issues are out of my control. It’s a WP issue.
      PS: IE is an inferior browser, so it’s not surprising that that’s where problems would show up.

    Hi James,
    Excellent explanation of the tarot cards meanings, I would like to take a look at your book The Soul’s journey, where can I find it?

    Additionally, we have created also a web page http://www.bestpsychics.club/tarot-card-readers/ which explains the meanings of the tarot cards, I think it is relevant for your audience too.

    Have a good day and promise you to come back to your website soon, you have great content here!

    Jenny
